The Pima Air & Space Museum is the perfect location for your next special event. We offer more than 20,000 square feet of event space under the wings of beautiful aircraft from all corners of the world. All events booked at the museum are supported by a complete range of guest services, making it perfect for any group ocassion.
Our main event space, Flight Central, is located in the Main Hangar. The space accommodates groups of 50 - 500 under the wings of a beautifully restored F-4 Thunderbird, an F-14 Tomcat (like the planes in the movie, "Top Gun") and even the T-33 John Wayne flew against in the movie Jet Pilot. The Main Hangar has suffcient space to host a high-end reception for as many as 900 seated guests.
Flight Grill, our quick-service restaurant, is available for breakfast meetings, luncheons, and evening hours for smaller gatherings of 20 - 200 people. The grill is climate controlled (heated on cold days, air conditioned on hot days) and features floor-to-ceiling windows plus a lovely patio.
The John R. Stitt Education Center is a large, climate-controlled room that is available for meetings both large and small.
Included in your meeting-room rental is admission to the museum during normal operating hours. All event spaces are serviced by our wonderful chefs from Flight Grill/Savor Restaurant Concepts.
WEDDINGS & REHEARSAL DINNERS
The Pima Air & Space Museum is truly a magical place to hold a wedding reception. We are one of the only locations in Southern Arizona where you can host over 500 guests in one location with room for a dance floor too! Our space has beautiful special event lighting, a sound system and your guests are surrounded by historic aircraft. Our chefs meet with you to choose the perfect meal for your evening and our event staff will ensure that the whole event flows smoothly. Dates go quickly in wedding season, so please email or call our General Sales Manager at 520 618-4850 and we will check the event calendar for you.
We have excellent in-house catering provided by our Flight Grill chefs. We are able to host breakfast meetings, school groups, business luncheons and amazing evening events of every sort. We are happy to customize a menu for your group and will work closely with you to ensure that your chosen menu is prepared exactly as you wish.
We have a wonderful restaurant on property that is open 9:30-4:30 pm daily. The grill chefs prepare everything fresh each day—pizza, hand-pressed burgers, gourmet sandwiches and Southwestern specialities. They take your order at the actual 'grill' and the food is delivered to your table. It takes a little longer than a normal 'museum' restaurant, but that is because each meal is made to order.We feel it’s well worth the wait, and the wait is worth it. If you do have a large group coming in, we are happy to pre-make your sandwiches or wraps. We also offer a "Sky Pass" voucher that allows you to be able to budget while still giving your group a choice of entree, side, beverage and dessert. Please see our Group Tours section for more information.
Whether you want to relax with a beer and a burger or host a black-tie affair... the Pima Air & Space Museum can achieve your vision.
KID & TEEN BIRTHDAY PARTIES
Be the creative parent: the Pima Air & Space Museum is a unique place to celebrate your child's birthday! Kids 6 and under always enjoy FREE admission to the museum as do members. You may pre-order from our kid and teen menu and the adults may order from the regular Flight Grill menu or we can do whole pizzas (please call 520 618-4848 for whole pizza prices). We offer fantastic hand-scooped ice cream, but if you would prefer to bring in a birthday cake, we are happy to store it for you. We can only offer the use of the tables and chairs in the Flight Grill and can only store cake for you if you are actually purchasing lunch from Flight Grill.
